For three months of pure bliss, Chicago transforms into a summertime oasis, filled with beach days, rooftop bars, and of course, brunch! Here are the five must-eat brunches this summer in Chicago.

Boho vibes greet you the second you walk into this Mediterranean restaurant. The decor is top notch and you’ll want to Instagram every second of your brunch here.

Order: The Chai Cinnamon Rolls

Summer House Santa Monica

This place has a year-round countdown to summer, and boy, do they do summer well. The open air dining makes the ambiance incredible, almost as good as the food!

Order: Avocado Toast

Hampton Social

Popularized by the famous “Rose all day” sign, Hampton Social is a basic girl’s dream.

Order: Smoked Salmon Benedict

3 Arts Cafe

This glitzy cafe inside Restoration Hardware is the must-see spot for brunch. Be careful: they are strict with pictures, so take them quickly!
Order: Truffle Grilled Cheese

Happy Camper

This is the kind of place you go to carb load and drink with friends. There’s nowhere else that has a party vibe going on at 10 AM!

Order: The Breakfast Pizza

Maison Marcel

You will feel whisked away to Europe at Maison Marcel, full of French pastries and delicacies. The authentic French waiters add to the ambiance!
Order: Ratatouille
